Aging backwards? Yes, it’s true. Success is up to you: passively allow the aging process to drag you down, or take action and get moving to enjoy your life to the fullest. No matter your health or physical abilities, Essentrics can help you age backwards and stay active, pain-free and independent your entire life.
Physical activity is key to healthy aging. The National Institute on Aging recommends regular exercise to help you stay healthy, strong and mobile. To experience a wide range of real-life benefits you need four types of exercise, Essentrics includes them all. This unique full-body program includes strength, flexibility, balance and endurance training.
In every Essentrics workout every muscle is equally lengthened and strengthened to rebalance the entire body from head to toe. The non-stop rhythm of each Essentrics class improves endurance. The constant pulling up and pulling out strengthens the muscles while decompressing the joints. The fluid range of motion movements effortlessly increase flexibility. Yes, you can slow down, and even reverse, the aging process with Essentrics. To get started, contact Essentrics with Karen today!
Airplane Sequence! The arms are the wings of an airplane, when one drops down the other raises upward. This Essentrics Signature Sequence uses fluid rotation of the spine to liberate and strengthen the core muscles of the body. The arms are used as levers to rebalance the full musculature of the spine relieving back pain, improving posture, toning the waist, and increasing speed and power in movement.
All Essentrics workouts are designed to rebalance the full body with equal amounts of strength and flexibility. The exercises follow the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements. The Essentrics full-body approach helps broaden the range of motion within each and every joint.
Rotating a joint in the middle of a stretch activates surrounding muscles that tend to get ignored in standard static stretching. This activation balances the joint, relieves pain and prevents injury. The whole body working together in harmony helps us move freely uninhibited by pain and stiffness, with energy and vigor for life.

The ankle! The powerhouse that supports the full weight of the entire body. We need strength and mobility in our ankles to move freely with power and ease. When the ankles become tight they restrict the movement of the feet and the legs—inevitably leading to muscle weakness and immobility throughout the whole body.
Stiff ankles cause a negative chain reaction producing muscular imbalances, poor posture, and chronic aches and pains. The result is instability, inhibited movement, and a rapid feeling of aging. The solution is simple: gently increase the strength and mobility of the ankles.
Essentrics unique approach to full-body mobility includes exercises scientifically designed to improve the strength and flexibility of the ankles. This creates a positive chain reaction right up the legs into the knees, hips and spine, relieving stiffness and increasing freedom of movement. Every Essentrics workout incorporates equal amounts of strengthening and lengthening from the top of the head to the tips of the toes. Rebalancing the entire muscular structure simultaneously keeps us pain-free, fully mobile and feeling young.

Stop and take a good look at your feet. They are quite fascinating. Each foot is composed of twenty-six small bones that are connected by thirty-three joints and controlled by nineteen muscles. Over one hundred ligaments hold everything together to form a biomechanical wonder of movement. All these many muscles, tendons, and ligaments work together to execute delicate shifts which enable you to have the balance and maneuverability necessary to walk, run, jump, dance and play.
The barefoot full-body strength training done in Essentrics is the most functional exercising you can do for your body. Your body is an interconnected chain, so movement at one of your joints affects all the other joints. Unlocking and strengthening the foot begins a positive chain reaction that leads to higher energy levels and increased mobility throughout the body.
The foot exercises in Essentrics help each individual joint in the foot move effortlessly and with strength and power. These benefits ripple throughout your entire musculoskeletal system allowing ease of movement, increased energy, reduced risk of injury, and pain relief all the way up the body to your knees, hips, back and neck, and even to your hands and fingers.
When it comes to maintaining a healthy, pain-free body all the muscle chains—large and small—are equally important. The exercises in Essentrics are scientifically sequenced together to stretch and strengthen all the muscles from the head to the feet. Equally strong and flexible, your muscles are able to work in harmony together and you are able to enjoy life to the fullest.
Toes! Small but mighty. The 14 bones of the toes are among the smallest, and yet, they help support the entire weight of the human body. Toes provide stability, agility and power. One of the major muscle chains of our bodies begins with the toes and goes all the way up to the neck. When the toes function poorly, the whole body can be adversely affected.
Maintaining healthy mobile toes will help your knees, hips and back to stay healthy, mobile and pain-free. They will also help you to be able to balance, to hold your shifting weight through hundreds of varied movements, and to meet the ground with ease and enthusiasm. If we exercise our entire body from the tips of the toes to the top of the head, with an equal emphasis on strength and flexibility, we can enjoy vitality that lasts a lifetime.
Essentrics workouts are scientifically designed to release and rebalance the whole body while developing lean, strong and flexible muscles. Essentrics full-body movements, strengthen your muscles, decompresses your joints, give you tremendous energy and reconnect you with the joyful pleasure of movement.
